Why do we celebrate Mother's Day?

As the old proverb goes, "God couldn't be everywhere, therefore he invented mothers."

Today, Mother's Day means sending just the right cards and gifts to moms and wives for all the warmth and love they give all year. The words to tell a mom how special she can be hard to find.

Just up ahead, read some of the poems and quotes that you'll find at top sites around the Web for inspiration. And, if you still can't think of a better way to express just how wonderful she is, you can always borrow one of these...

And may you happy live,
And long us bless;
Receiving as you give
Great happiness.

"To My Mother" ~ Christina Rossetti
Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother"

"To My Mother" ~ Edgar Allen Poe
